Roll Call

Thought it would be interesting to find out more about my readers so feel free to answer these questions.

1. Where are you from? (Let's see who lives in the most interesting, obscure or exotic place)
2. What do you do? (Who's got the strangest job?)
3. Tell everyone one interesting thing about yourself.

I'll go first...

1. Newport, South Wales
2. Web Designer
3. I've (technically) had cosmetic surgery and a bonus one - I played the two major parts in a primary school play: a Naughty Sunbeam and Jack Frost (I still have the pictures somewhere!)

Update: I'd like to try and make this the most commented post so don't be shy!

Update: Thanks to all who have posted comments, it's really interesting to see where eveyone is from. I don't think any of the places have been too exotic.

2. Au pair ... that may require explanation. It's a French term that literally translates to "on par" in English, and is a term used for young people between 18-26 usually who travel abroad to live with and work for a host family, providing childcare services. In a nutshell, it's a cheap, foreign, live-in nanny.

3. I moved across the world initially to pursue a serious relationship with someone I'd known online for over a year - I got here, and despite reassuring me I was everything he'd imagined and more, he rejected me! (issues with his ex, as I later realized.) That's the disappointment of a lifetime, let me tell you, but I'm now happily in a relationship with someone else and still thoroughly enjoying the decision to move countries.
